Watch out for the "wierd tech guy"

by BobArtner - TechRepublic In reply to Bob's Blog

The Department of Homeland Security released a study that showed many computer sabotage crimes are committed by...wait for it...disgruntled employees.<br><br>I loved this part:<br><br><i>... "In one case highlighted in the study, an unidentified employer said he recognized unusual behavior by one saboteur ? who shut down the company's communications for more than two days over a dispute involving a severance payment ? but attributed the behavior to the worker being a 'weird tech guy.'"...</i><br><br>Read the whole story at:<br><br><a href="http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20050516/ap_on_hi_te/computer_sabotage">Sabotage study</a>

Good explanation of Greasemonkey

by BobArtner - TechRepublic In reply to Bob's Blog

Wired has a good introduction to Greasemonkey, the Firefox plugin that allows you create custom browser behavior for individual websites. It also describes several examples of Greasemonkey applications.

Which Desktop Search is best?

by BobArtner - TechRepublic In reply to Bob's Blog

The link below is the AP's story on Microsoft's official release of its MSN Desktop Search software. Up to this point, I've avoided using any of the big three: MSFT, Yahoo! or Google, for desktop search, but I'm prepared to bow to the inevitable. My question is: which one to use? Add a comment to this post if you have experiences, good or bad, with any of these.<br><br><a href="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7871777/">Microsoft launches MSN desktop search</a>

Which Desktop Search is best?

all i've used is google, but I absolutely swear by it.

What google desktop search pointed out to me is just how badly Outlook search works...and I put up with it for years without thinking of it. What an opportunity and tool...why didn't it happen before now? I'm kicking myself for not thinking of it.

Which Desktop Search is best?

One of the advantages of MSN desktop search (so I've been told) is that automatically notes deletions to your Outlook email, while Google desktop does not. But you like the way Google desktop searches Outlook?

by debuggist Staff In reply to Which Desktop Search is b ...

I have Google Desktop search installed, but I rarely use it. It searches too much for me. Usually, I just want to search the filesystem or email but not both.

For Outlook search, I use Lookout. It integrates with Outlook, so I don't have to leave the application. And it works really well and is fast. It used to be here: http://sandbox.msn.com/ (this site has some cool tools). You can get it at http://www.lookoutsoft.com/Lookout/download.html.

The End of the PDA

by BobArtner - TechRepublic In reply to Bob's Blog

I missed this article last week <a href="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7820085/">PDA's Losing Ground</a>.<br><br>It wasn't too long ago that PDA's were must have devices...and now, they are in danger of being marginalized by smart phones...of course, you could argue that the smart phone itself is an outgrowth of the PDA - and so is the iPod for that matter.

Sith: Worst Star Wars Dialogue Ever?

by BobArtner - TechRepublic In reply to Bob's Blog

We all know that as a screenwriter, George Lucas is a great cinematographer. His characters often seem wooden, and he forces his actors to mouth dialogue that would make even Olivier sound like a moron. <br><br>And I say this as a fan...<br><br>Word is that <i>Revenge of the Sith</i> has broken new ground in lame Lucas dialogue. Here are a couple examples:<br><br><i>"Hold me, Anakin! Hold me like you did by the lake at Naboo!"<br><br>"Obi-Wan says you killed younglings!"<br><br>"Obi-Wan, watch the surveillance tapes you should not!"<br><br></i>Does this mean I'm not going to see the movie? Of course I am. But I will be grinding my teeth during these (and no doubt lots of other) clunkers.

Sith: Worst Star Wars Dialogue Ever?

Having watched the movie with Bob, I can attest that he did indeed get up and leave more than once. I can only assume the dialogue was to blame.
